On July 17, 2014 in the early hours of the morning, Chance went into cardiac arrest at Sloan Kettering Hospital. Thanks be to God, Chance's father, Jeff, was in the room with him at the time and heard Chance gasping for air. Jeff alerted the medical staff who then worked to revive Chance for 27 minutes before finally resuscitating him. He was placed on a ventilator and transferred to ICU. All prayers are needed for this sweet boy.
